If it were me, I wouldn't worry about it, especially in this day and age.  The fact that the dog was playful should help you to feel better.  A rabid dog would have bitten you in anger.  They did say that the dog had its shots. Seriously, if you are that worried, go to the doctor.  I, for one, would not be worried at all.  That is me, though.

I don't think I would worry either.  If the dog was rabid, the couple would not be able to walk it because it would try to bite them.

You would have more cause to worry about infection had the skin been broken.  

I don't recommend that people pet strange dogs, even if the owner says it is ok.  You never know how a dog will react.  They may see your action as threatening.  Admire from a distance and be safe.
